Walk - St Anthony Head and Place
4.5 miles (7.2 km)
Place Ferry Landing Stage - TR2 5EZ Place Ferry Landing Stage
Moderate - Terrain mostly easy, but with a steep climb from Molunan Beaches up to St Anthony Head. The stretch from St Anthony Head (where there is a car park) to a stile above the southern end of Porthbeor Beach (at SW 859 318) provides easy, level walking.
A circular walk of either 4½ or 6 miles can be started from the ferry landing stage at Place. Alternatively you can start from the car park at St Anthony Head. Whichever alternative you take, there are magnificent views as well as plenty of historical and wildlife interest to enjoy along the way. An especially good walk in autumn, when large flocks of many species of gull can be seen over the water. Children will enjoy the lighthouse and wartime features, and the hidden beaches at Porthbeor.
Porthbeor and Towan beaches are dog friendly. Have a look at our Top Dog Walks on the South West Coast Path for more dog friendly beaches and pubs.
